It is BO easy to blamo th« viomach. it can't say anything back lint the truth of the matter is the tomaeh is a// right. Nothing the mat or with it ut all. It is what is pul uto the btomsch that is causing th« ,rouble. The stomach knows when it eceives something that will be injuri »vis to tlie body, cr when it has beer »verloaded, and it protests against thi indigestible article or the surplui iniDWiit of food.

Painting Restored by Clever Method. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Independent, Buln Buln, Warragul, Berwick, Poowong and Jeetho Shire Advocate — 20 February 1914

Painting Restored by Clever Method. k One of the clevorest methods of re storing* a pointing1 over used was that applied, in New York recently in treating a canvas which, on ac count of its great age, had becomo almost us fragile as tissue paper. The first step was the gluing, by means of a vegetable compound, of a thick piece of Manilla paper over the face of the painting. The pic ture xnts then turned over, and from its back Was picked thread by thread all the rotten canvas. At the end of this operation all that remained of the original work was a delicate shell of paint glued to a sheet of paper. A new pieco of canvas was then attached to the back of the paint shell by means of strong lush glue. Tho Manilla, paper on the 6 face was easily re moved with hot water, after which there remained tho painting an be fore, but mounted upon u strong new eanvns.
